Okay, here's a couple of real good ones.

Death Duel of Kung Fu: Three different masters of three different styles (and one of them is actually referenced as a Korean fighter who very obviously practices Tae Kwan Do). Plus a busty female half-japanese member of the the royal chinese family adds up to a very enjoyable, if poorly filmed, movie.

72. Breaker! Breaker! (1977): A Chuck Norris trucker movie. How could anyone resist that? Yes this is pretty bad but it's still awfully entertaining in its fashion. This film has hillbilly truckers with secret vigilante desires, evil hillbilly cops under the control of a corrupt Texas would-be dictactor and Chuck Norris fighting in slow motion while trying to rescue his poor chump of a nephew from this Dukes of Hazzard-esque, or should that be Smokey and the Bandit-esque, scene.

70. SHAOLIN CHASTITY KUNG FU (1981):

Stars Alexander Lou, Ching Kuo Chung, Hilda Lau and Tak Sang Wong. Directed by Robert Tai.

Plot: After their homes are destroyed and their parents killed by a gang of murderous bandits named the Nine Devils, the villageís remaining children ranging from ages 5 to 18 flee into the woods but with the Nine Devils in pursuit hoping to wipe out the village completely. Fortunately, the children are found by a pair of Shaolin monks, one a master (Alexander Lou), who feel it their duty to protect them. Together they help the children escape but realize that the Nine Devils will not give up and so decide to train the children in the methods of Shaolin Kung Fu so they will be able to defend themselves if need be. However, circumstances eventually prove such that when their training is complete, the children decide to take the fight to the Nine Devils gang themselves hoping to gain a measure of revenge.

Comments: Well, itís certainly not your usual Kung Fu film and then again, in some ways it is. Whatís unusual is the element of having kids involved in brutal and bloody kung fu battles and no, the adults really donít seem to be holding back in either the training or the fights with the kids which makes their incredible stunts and the physical punishment they took for their roles all the more impressive. These kids are simply amazing to watch. Where it is your usual Kung Fu film is in terms of the basic revenge plot, the one common to almost every Kung Fu film there is. This one may have kids in it and sometimes even has child-like moments of fun and humor, especially at the expense of the sometimes buffoonish Nine Devils gang (all colorful large characters like one might expect on a wrestling show) but itís definitely not for kids especially given its ending features disturbing scenes of little kids seeking bloody retribution and revenge and no, they donít hold back. Thereís one very powerful, downright intense moment in the end when the children begin to sing, perhaps a response to all the violence and bloodshed all around them, maybe a desire for it to finally end.

I'd like to nominate the movies of Sho Kosugi. Yes, they're ninja movies which automatically summons up images of a whole bunch of cheesy poorly-choreographed martial arts movies. But Kosugi is the real thing (i.e. trained in ninjutsu), and he's just all-around fun to watch on screen. He only made a couple unfortunately. I'll throw out the first two.

69. Enter the Master
68. Revenge of the Ninja

He also showed up a few years later as the final assassin facing blind swordsman Rutger Hauer in "Blind Fury", another film that's a lot of fun. So I'll toss that one out there too.

The Story Of Ricky:  One of the most brutal and over the top films ever.  The best part is most of the violence is unecessary to the scene but its one of those cases where it makes the movie.  Thumbup
I like the part where the guy cuts out his own guts and tries to use them to strangle Ricky.  Good stuff :D

66. Policewoman (1974): Lacy Bond (Sondra Currie) kicks butt, even battling perennial bada$$ William Smith?! Arguably ahead of its time having a female butt kicking heroine.

59. TNT Jackson (1975): while the karate scenes aren't always convincingly pulled off, the view often proves great and this film proves great fun for those who can appreciate its merits (such as star Jeannie Bell  Twirling and the quirky blaxploitation dialogue).

I don't believe any has mentioned The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires yet.   Hammer Films teaming up with the Shaw Brothers was a masterful idea!
